Poe — Lemon Meringue lyrics

Spanish schoolteacher [?]: I call this song "lemon
Meringue".
Huh, that was A bad joke, eh? At least, this will
Be A good song.

Hold on you've gotta wait just a minute
See the cookie jar
I've got my hand caught in it
Just let me try and explain

You know I've been a good girl
But I hit a limit
I know there's not a lot of logic in it
But my life's been feeling to me

(Like lemon)
Sometimes it tastes so bitter
(Like lemon)
I've gotta make it sweeter... Hey...

Stop right there before I get bitter
(Bitter)
there's got to be A better way
There's got to be a way to make it sweeter
(Sweeter)
A little more like lemon meringue

So the other day well I found me a lover
Had a little hustle under the covers
It was delicious to me
Can't you see me there
Daydreaming of our future?
Oh my god I painted such a pretty picture
But my prince he never got back to me

(Like lemon)
Sometimes it tastes so bitter
(Like lemon)
I've got to make it sweeter... Hey...

Stop right there before I get bitter
(Bitter)
there's got to be A better way
There's got to be a way to make it sweeter
(Sweeter)
A little more like lemon meringue
(Like lemon)
like lemon

Stop right there before I get bitter
(Bitter)
there's got to be A better way
there's got to be A way to make it sweeter
(Sweeter)
A little more like lemon meringue
(Bitter)
(Sweeter)
(Like lemon)
(Sweeter)
(Bitter)
(Like lemon)
there's got to be A way to make it sweeter
(Sweeter)
A little more like lemon meringue

Father:
It is November 6th. We are in Madrid, Spain, and
It is a very, very important day
To celebrate it Anne will sing a song.
[Several changes in father's text.]
